How to Build a Resume That Stands Out Visually To Help Your Teen Land Their First Job

Creating a captivating resume that sparkles bright enough to catch an employer's attention is an art on its own terms.


With the ramp up pressure kids experience at school and the need to sign up to too many extracurricular activities, it’s no surprise how the number of teens employed have been declining over the past decades.
There are many benefits (and risks) of adolescent employment. The decision to allow your teen to have an after school job should be a well thought-out family decision based on how well they can manage responsibilities, time management and money.


But if your teen is ready to take the plunge the first thing they need to figure out is how to build a resume that stands out even if they don’t have any work experience.


But where to start? How do can you create a snapshot of your ambitions, show your strengths and interests and captive an employers attention?

Norcross Is Painting the Blues: Artist Konstantin Dimopoulos Colors Trees To Blue To Draw Attention To Deforestation Problem



The Blue Trees is a performance and installation artwork by the artist, Konstantin Dimopoulos, that takes an urban landscape with which you are familiar, and changes it for a brief period of time, so that it becomes something unfamiliar, even uncomfortable by using a powerful colour transformation to provoke discussion about a very important issue,  global deforestation

 

Every year the globe is deforested of some 13 million hectares of old forests, trees that sustain life on earth. Trees breathe for the planet and without them life cannot be sustained. The colour used on the trees is biologically safe pigmented water. As an ephemeral artwork, the colour will naturally degrade and the trees gradually revert to their natural state.

 
 
In nature colour is used both as a defensive mechanism, a means of protection, and as a mechanism to attract. The Blue Trees attempts to waken a similar response from viewers. It is within this context that the blue denotes sacredness, something reverential.
 

"As an artist I feel that trees are largely invisible in our daily lives, and it’s not until too late do we realise how important they are personally, aesthetically and environmentally. The object of this installation is to generate discussion about trees and the role that art plays in highlighting social and environmental issues. Colour is a powerful stimulant, a means of altering perception and defining space and time. The fact that blue is a colour that is not naturally identified with trees suggests to the viewer that something unusual, something out of the ordinary is happening. It becomes a magical transformation. In nature colour is used both as a defensive mechanism, a means of protection, and as a mechanism to attract. The Blue Trees attempts to waken a similar response from viewers. It is within this context that the blue denotes sacredness, something reverential."
